We are excited to announce that Aaron Clark (he/him/his) will join Fenway Health as the Chief Pharmacy Officer and EVP of Business Development on May 2.
Aaron comes to us via Equitas Health, an Ohio-based nonprofit that serves people at risk for/affected by HIV/AIDS, the LGBTQIA+ community, and anyone looking for a welcoming health care home. Aaron served in a variety of senior roles during his 10-year tenure at Equitas, and he is credited with the successful expansion and integration of patient-centered pharmacy services at multiple sites throughout the state. He also has a strong background in retail pharmacy. Aaron is considered a leading national expert in HIV/AIDS pharmacy matters and on the 340B Drug Pricing Program, the federal program that provides discounts on outpatient prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs to Federally Qualified Health Centers like Fenway Health and other safety net health providers.
This is an important new role for the organization. Pharmacy services are a central component of our patient-centered model of care at Fenway Health. We have identified pharmacy operations as critical to our efforts to achieve Strategic Priority Four in our five-year strategic plan, which is to ensure our financial sustainability and support innovation to enable long-term impact. Aaron will be accountable to deliver on data-driven performance metrics that optimize and strengthen our pharmacy services. He will work with the pharmacy, clinical care, and public health teams to ensure that our pharmacy services are patient-centered, optimized, and better integrated with clinical services to meet the needs and demands of our community in an ever-evolving pharmacy landscape.
Aaron will also work closely with teams throughout the organization who are working to develop and expand mission-driven initiatives in the delivery of clinical care, integration of our public health programs, and educational programs. He will advise our policy and advocacy teams when decisions that may impact our patients’ access to care and treatment are being considered. In these ways, his work will closely align with Strategic Priority Two which is to expand how we serve local communities while exploring ways to better support LGBTQIA+ people everywhere and Strategic Priority Three which is to align and integrate our core services.
Please join us in welcoming Aaron!
